The new 4.2.1 update currently rolling out (just in time for the month of December), puts December back at the end of the calendar, fixing the issue found in the latest Nexus 4 handset.

The update is arriving as an over-the-air download for Nexus 4 users, though Nexus 10 owners looking to fix the problem ASAP will have to manually install the update.

The 1.1MB update means that all calendar related issues, including missing birthdays for contacts born in December in the People app, have now been fixed.

The date fix seems to be the only notable addition in the update.

Merry Christmas!
